Hannah, Kristin "Angel Falls" - 2000
The story of a woman who is in a coma and her husband who tries to carry on with the life of the family. Only through contacting her first husband can he bring her back to consciousness but is afraid he will lose her through this forever.
A love story with some complications, your usual chick lit. Although, it is beautifully told, a story about devotion and fidelity. Not a bad read.
I later read "Winter Garden" with my book club.
From the back cover:
"Mikaela Campbell lies in a coma after a freak riding accident. Although doctors have told her devoted husband not to expect a recovery, Liam hopes his love will accomplish what they cannot. Between caring for their two grieving children, Liam sits by Mikaela's bedside day after day, holding her hand, telling her the stories of their life together.
Then he discovers Mikaela's secret past: her first husband was world-famous movie star Julian True. And when Julian's name is the only one Mikaela will respond to, Liam must face the painful reality that Julian may be the only person who can bring Mikaela back to life. But at what cost? Does Liam love his wife enough to risk losing her to a man no woman can resist?
The decision he makes strikes deep at the heart of his family, transforming each of them. For when Mikaela finally wakes up, she is a different woman, changed in a way no-one could have foreseen."
